Riverway, Townsville

4.6
One of the city’s most exciting and dynamic areas is Riverway, offering a combination of commercial, cultural, and leisure/sports activities. This riverfront parkland, opened in 2006, stretches for 11 km (7 mi) along the Cross River. The nearby business district, where you can visit a number of trendy shops and cafés, is connected to the parkland area by a pathway stretching along the shore. Enjoy a variety of water sports at the site’s calm lagoon, or drop by the nearby cricket stadium (with a capacity of over 10,000 visitors) to experience the famous Australian game day atmosphere. A convenient arts center and gallery are located in the area as well, hosting regular exhibitions, plays, and concerts. Planning Townsville trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • Great place to cool off and have a bbq. Beautiful view of the river from the lagoons, plenty of shade in the water, and lifeguards on duty! Fabulous community facility at no charge
  • It is a great place to hang with friends and go for a swim and also catch some pokemon
  • A great place to take the kids to cool off on a hot day
  • Great free place to swim. Two large chlorinated pools, one for the big people swimming laps and one for the little kids. Beautiful location, looking out over parks the the river. My favourite place to swim. Can get a little crowded during school holidays, but that's to be expected with a free pool in the tropics!
  • Beautiful area. Nice pool
